Apple announced at its Wednesday September 12, 2018 Apple Event that the Apple Watch Series 4 can detect falls by using its accelerometer to detect arm motion patterns that occur before a person falls.

The watch can also detect some incidents of heart rhythms that may indicate atrial fibrillation and other heart rhythm detail — evan an ECG.

The watch is FDA-approved to measure an Electrocardiogram or ECG. Built-in electrodes behind the face of the watch and on the crown of the watch — where a user holds the finger of the opposite hand — are coordinated to create a closed circuit and pick up the body’s ECG signal.

The app can measure normal sinus rhythm and atrial fibrillation similar to a Lead I ECG.

The watch will be available September 24, 2018

WatchOS 5 will be available on September 17, 2018.
